Min-max theory and least area minimal hypersurfaces

12:30pm to 1:30pm
Minimal hypersurfaces are one important way to understand the structure of the ambient manifold and min-max theory is a powerful method for constructing them. I will present the basic ideas of min-max theory, a theorem of Calabi-Cao as an application and a possible extension of the latter.
